Draghi said bond purchases would begin on March 9th and continue until at least September 2016, although he clarified that the central objective will be to get inflation to just under bank's 2.0% threshold. ECB staff projections revised 2015 inflation forecasts to 0.0% from +0.7% prior (citing much lower oil)

01[14:20] {Threei}  nah
01[14:20] {Threei}  50 is new 30
01[14:20] {Threei}  ok, 33
[14:20] {dino} well, then i guess i'm ok
01[14:21] {Threei}  you are... dunno about 30, but I am certainly in better shape than I was at, say 43
[14:22] {dino} thats great. i need to lose about 30 more pounds, down 15 since january 3rd
01[14:23] {Threei}  certainly doable
01[14:23] {Threei}  not easy but doable
[14:23] {dino} in 5th place out of 25 in that ymca weight loss contest where they publish your % loss/gain each week
[14:23] {RonS} tough in the winter...but myabe spring will happen...
01[14:24] {Threei}  let me throw one thing your way to look into, helps immendely with both weight loss and physical shape, and takes less time than many other ways... let me find a link
[14:24] {dino} well, goal is to be at 200 by july carribean cruise, so we will see. that would have me down 30 altogether
01[14:25] {Threei}
[14:26] {dino} ok, on the site, i will read it
01[14:26] {Threei}  difficult to believe how effective this thing is... seeems easy but if you do it right, you feel like you are going to die... for about 5 min, then you are OK :)
[14:27] {dino} i will check it out.
[14:28] {dino} i have been doing the mens health bodyweight cardio burner 20 minute cd. exhausts me. of course i was never much of a cardio guy aside from walking dog
01[14:28] {Threei}  this is very different
[14:29] {dino} for past 22 years my exercise has been tossing steel around/free weights. just last fall i was benching 290 lbs, then hurt my shoulder in november
01[14:29] {Threei}  follow this protocol to the t, it's really very effective
[14:30] {dino} you did this?
01[14:30] {Threei}  yes, for 8 months already
01[14:30] {Threei}  I quit smoking, gained 30 lbs in a blink of eye
01[14:30] {Threei}  couldn't shake it off whatever I did
01[14:31] {Threei}  started stabilizing it slowly, then sliding down, paunfully slow
01[14:31] {Threei}  then a few drastic measures changed things for real,
01[14:32] {Threei}  one being dropping all the wheat, cereal etc, and replacing them with buckwheat, including baking my own buckwheat bread,
01[14:32] {Threei}  another - this tabata protocol,
[14:32] {dino} i'm low carbing now
01[14:32] {Threei}  plus light weight training and an hour to three a day of walking
01[14:33] {Threei}  shed 30 lbs, platooed,
01[14:33] {Threei}  now consolidating for a new breakdown
01[14:33] {Threei}  weight chart looks like total DBI :)
[14:33] {RonS} gonna short it?
01[14:33] {Threei}  aslready did :)
[14:34] {dino} lol
01[14:34] {Threei}  btw, when you do this thing, it's practically impossible to track time, you get fuzzy
01[14:34] {Threei}  so, I found and downloaded a free app
[14:35] {RonS} no shit, you have no oxygen...
01[14:35] {Threei}  that signals end and start of each 20 sec and 10 sec period
[14:35] {RonS} when i used to run the half mile i would see stars at the end of the races...
01[14:35] {Threei}  calls "round and workout timer"
01[14:35] {Threei}  tablet or phone
01[14:36] {Threei}  it's even worse in this case ron
01[14:36] {Threei}  because you pedal with all you've got
[14:37] {RonS} reminds me of track coaches workout of for the half mile...all out run 20 seconds...all out run 20 seconds...15 times
01[14:37] {Threei}  not slowing down to control breath, just pushing and pushingm if you can do any faster you do
01[14:37] {Threei}  it's amazing how much it draws out of you in just 8 20-second rounds
[14:37] {RonS} and the bastard put me in charge...couldn't screw the pooch...brutal
01[14:38] {Threei}  hehe
[14:38] {RonS} but first year out was 5th in the league...
01[14:38] {Threei}  well done

[15:19] {RonS} hey dino...

[15:35] {RonS} out my window is the banks of the Little Dry Creek River...
[15:35] {dino} used to trade downtown in my office building, but the three others that traded with me, blew up. so instead of sitting there alone (which i did for two months), i now rent it out
[15:36] {RonS} lol...which in PA you would call a ditch...but in Colorado it's a river that only has water about 30 days a year
[15:36] {dino} vad, i have printed the program and will give it a try

[15:37] {dino} when i first moved home to trade, my wife asks "why not set up your trading office in our bedroom (it's big)?" i replied; "yeah, i want to spend 16 hours of my day locked in the bedroom"
01[15:39] {Threei}  hehe
[15:39] {dino} well guys not a lot of trades, but profittable (71% of goal)
01[15:40] {Threei}  on a plus side here as well
[15:40] {RonS} when we moved here from the relative banks of the Columbia River said to wife "see the South Platte River there?" she: where? me: over there?  she; that? me: yes, that's the largest river in the State east of the mountains  she; you're kidding me, that's not a river...
